    The car was at the Carlisle Import and Kit Car show last year (Carlisle Pennsylvania early spring). No doubt it will be back again. If you can look past is obvious homage to the F40, it IS a very well constructed car, top notch construction and componentry.

    The car is very cool, but you can clearly see where the body is off shape from a real F40. A kit car i would like to have though.

    You can definately see where it's a bit off in shape but my goodness that is a well done job.

    So...a Lexus engine to start with eh?

    Very nice looking car. The sound in itself is worth watching the videos!
    My brother has done a few Manta's, (McLarens). They can be great like this F-40 or very poor abominations. The amount of work involved in one of these can be staggering! This appears to be a very nice example.

    I believe they sell them. I think i read something to the tune of 150,000. Not exactly sure.

    150,000 well spent! unless you absolutely had to have the true ferrari model, this would be a killer deal. the F40 is loved because its like a race car and i dont think anything street legal could be more of a race car than this!

    Nice work, looks very nice and seems to track very fast. Sounds pretty thrilling too! I noticed the 1/4 mile time was quoted as 10@130. 130 trap speed is more like low 12's/high 11's where a ten second car should trap well into very high 140's or 150's.
